TIGER WOODS is one of the best golfers to have graced the planet – and his love life has been out of the rough recently.
The golfing icon returned to the top of the sport after he secured the Masters title for the fifth time at Augusta in 2019.
Meet Erica Herman, the lady in Tiger Wood’s life
The American mogul, however, was involved in a horrific car accident which put his playing career on pause for a year.
The icon returned at Augusta earlier this year, managing to play the entire weekend but ultimately coming up short.
And this week he’s back in action at The Open, which he has won three times before.
Who is Erica Herman?
Golf legend Tiger Woods sparked rumours he had bagged himself another “birdie” when he was spotted cosying up to a beauty on the course.
The star was pictured being hugged by Erica Herman as he watched the US win the Presidents Cup in New Jersey in October 2017.
Erica – who managed his pop-up restaurant titled The Woods – was wearing a “player spouse” badge usually reserved for wives and girlfriends.
And the pair went public with their relationship that November.
She then cheered him to victory when he won his historic 80th PGA at the Tour Championship, at East Lake, Georgia.
Once branded a “gold digger” who “chased Tiger like a puppy”, she is now credited with saving the golf legend’s life.
